Semi-Digested Link Central Dispatch

CM Evans is back with fresh cartoonage. Welcome back, CM. I've been wearing my t-shirts with your cartoons on them lately. I wore "His Sovereign Royal Excellence" to childbirth class last night and sweated a nice ring in the armpits while watching the video.

Lily Hoang's ebook entitled THE WOMAN DOWN THE HALL has been released today from Lamination Colony state hospital. You should visit. Take your mace.

Blake Butler says these things about TWDTH.

Eat that acronym and like it.



Adam Robinson has returned from the woods and he is older now than when he went. Ryan Call posted positive opinions about Six Off 66 by David Daniel.

Dear Everybody

Piece of unfortunate yet important news: nothing is subversive anymore.

At this moment in history, the future is almost behind us.

I am wound tightly today. Have been for the past couple of months. Things are bearing down.

Where have all the semi-digested links gone?

Apparently, Estelle Getty died. Like, recently.

I still have a copy of The Gulag Archipelago that I will mail to whoever wants it. All I ask for in return is to know the secret handshake.

Shane Jones's chapbook entitled "I Will Unfold You With My Hairy Hands" is now available from Greying Ghost Press.

Table of Contents:
.......
I Will Unfold You With My Hairy Hands
Really Important Sentences
I Built A Wagon While Falling From A Tree
Floating Animals
Messengers
The Man And Girl Who Had Mustaches

You can hear Kathryn Regina deliver a very fine reading of the titular (that is a popular word lately, I think) story here.
I ordered that and Peter Berghoef's News of the Haircut. I am looking forward, backward, up, down, and inward to reading them.

Um, ppppppppppp, also, I ordered a copy of Johannes Göransson's Dear Ra, out from Starcherone Press, which also published Zachary Mason's The Lost Books of the Odyssey, which I drooled and ranted and rambled over. Blake wrote a spectastic review of Dear Ra that also performed as a flame or a boot to me arse to get down to it and order a copy. I also bought some kind of speedo, too. Blake said.

Michael Kimball posted William Walsh's and Zachariah Zebadiah Handler's life stories recently. See.

Dear Everybody

Prathna Lor has a poetry manuscript. Word.

Jeff Vande Zande added some thoughts to what is now "Butler's Open Node Theory", and another approach to writing reviews.

Jimmy Chen is out of the office right now, can I take your name and number and have him give you a call? Come back, Jimmy. Come back.

I am missing something. But isn't this enough for now?

I feel a name drop coming on . . .

It is coming.

Josh Maday said...

the week of august 4, 2008 will be remembered as a week during which things happened.

i am thinking of just titling my blog THINGS BLAKE BUTLER IS DOING, what do you think? you could set up the webcam and send a live feed to my blog so people can see what you are doing. you can pick your nose and wipe it on the camera until you are eclipsed. we will charge admission. we will make money and change the world.

Thanks for the plug, Josh -- it is good to be back. Happy to hear the t-shirts get some scenery, too -- birthing classes are an awesome place to wear them.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

Bradley Sands said...

Jimmy Chen's website is awesome. I thought it was abandoned the first time I looked, but I just stumbled on it again.

Josh Maday said...

ryan, bradley, me too. he is hilarious. i want that mock google search on my site.

cm, yeah, i think childbirth classes are the perfect occasion for wearing t-shirts with your cartoons on them.

we should do that, blake. people would watch. you will be even more of a celebrity. yeah, you should change outfits every four minutes. keep things fresh. people could send outfits.
